“What is my focus? Where do I direct my attention?” When coached by Dr. Nienkerke-Springer, professionals from multinational corporations and medium-sized businesses can expect to be confronted with questions like these. For her, such reflections are an essential part of today’s fast-paced business world. Asked about her own answers, Dr. Nienkerke-Springer reveals a clear compass. “My values lend me orientation. Independence, appreciation, resilience and joy at work. I continuously try to find out whether I’m growing towards these values or whether we’re growing apart.” Looking back at her career as a management consultant, Dr. Nienkerke-Springer can already detect roots of her profession in her childhood.
